Services for Men
Men start to experience declining hormone levels in their mid-20s. Andropause, known as “male menopause”, results from lower testosterone levels throughout the body. This can cause symptoms that adversely affect a man’s quality of life.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Men can greatly improve their health with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. While men do not suffer from the sweeping decline of hormones that women do, they experience a more gradual loss of hormones.
The decline in Testosterone Production Begins in Men’s 30s
Starting around age 30, men begin to have a notable decline in testosterone production. When a man reaches his mid to late 40s or early 50s, he may experience a steep drop in hormonal production, andropause.
When this occurs, men may notice a series of unwanted changes including:
- Weight Gain
- Sexual Dysfunction
Hormonal Deficiencies Impact Numerous Bodily Functions
Male hormones are responsible for sexual and reproductive function, metabolic activities, bone density, and emotional health. When they are not produced in adequate amounts, men may notice mood swings, increased anxiety, depression, anger, or nervousness. Workouts may not yield the same results as they used to, fat can accumulate around the middle section, and men can notice they have an overall lack of motivation or passion for life. Libido often decreases as well.
These symptoms are often caused by hormonal deficiencies, which can impact numerous bodily functions. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men can successfully reduce many of the effects of hormone decline.
Some men report that they feel as good as they did in their 20s and 30s after treatment. Bio-identical hormones can greatly improve health and wellness in men experiencing hormone related issues.
Bio-identical hormone replacement can produce some of the following benefits:
Reduction of Erectile Dysfunction
Sexual function is directly related to healthy amounts of testosterone, and when it is deficient, erectile dysfunction can occur. Men may notice that they no longer experience involuntary morning erections and can become unable to become aroused. Bio-identical hormones may help to reduce instances of erectile dysfunction.
Reduced testosterone levels can be blamed for decreased libido. When this first begins to happen, men may notice a lack of desire or interest, and after time, all of your sex drive can disappear. Bio-identical testosterone treatment can improve libido and reignite sexual passion.
Increased Muscle Mass
Muscle atrophy can also result from a decrease of testosterone, due to the hormones’ role in building muscle. During andropause, most men lose around 12-15 pounds of muscle mass. This is because testosterone helps the red blood cells produce and build muscle tissue. When testosterone levels are deficient, the body cannot adequately build muscle. Bio-identical hormones can restore hormones and increase muscle mass.
Hormones affect brain chemistry, and when they are out of balance, moods such as anger, resentment, irritability, anxiety, or nervousness can occur. Hormones also affect the heart, which can cause mood-related heart palpitations and anxiety. Balanced hormones can put an end to the misery caused by uncontrollable emotions.
